My AMD pc broke (Specs: AMD Ryzen 5 3600, RX 580 8GB, Asus Prime A520M-K, 32GB of RAM at 3200mhz, 480GB NVMe, 2TB HDD), I was getting a hardware error, so I decided to put my main components like the GPU, RAM, NVMe and HDD into my mom's computer (Specs before swapping components: Intel Core i3-10100, Biostar H410M, 8GB of RAM at 2666mhz, 2TB HDD. Specs after swapping components: Intel Core i3-10100, Biostar H410M, 32GB of RAM at 2666mhz, 480GB NVMe, x2 2TB HDD) after swapping the components I booted it up and a BSOD popped up saying something about Ryzen drivers, I think that it has something to do with the chipset drivers, since my NVMe had AMD chipset drivers and now I put it into an Intel system... Can anyone PLEASE help me solve this issue? :)

You switched motherboards. You will most likely have to do a clean OS install. That is typical for a motherboard swap, and more likely when changing CPU manufacturers.

You installed the OS with Ryzen components and now you have gone Intel without doing a clean install of the OS. You will need to do a clean install of Windows for this to go away.
